Happy Friday! Can you believe it is already November? There are only 20 days till Thanksgiving and 51 days until Christmas. Eeeek! I’ve got today off work so I am kicking my day off with a spin class and then getting started on a wedding weekend for one of my best friends. Derek and I are both in the wedding party so it will be a fun filled weekend. What are y’alls plans for the weekend?
As I mentioned, the holidays are sneaking up on us and that means not only shopping for Christmas presents but also dressing the part. I love wearing plaid in the fall but there is just something about finding the perfect festive plaid piece. This bow tartan plaid dress totally has my name all over it. How cute would it look with leggings or tights and a pair of booties? It gives off a very Kate Spade look but is under $75 and also comes in a red version. This plaid ruffle shirt (seriously perfect Christmas colors) would be an ideal piece for a causal Christmas day or even when you are out and about shopping. The slight ruffle detail around the neck and down the front gives you a subtle girly detail to an otherwise plain button down. It’s never too early to find those festive pieces.
Speaking of being festive, another item I like to include in my holiday outfits is sequins. With all this talk of parties and the amazing food and drinks that comes along with them, I try to amp up my workouts so I don’t feel too guilty about indulging a little. These sequin print work out leggings are AMAZING! I can’t get over how real the ombre sequin print looks. You can get those extra squats in looking like a million bucks and “sparkle” while doing them.
I always love finding comfy yet cute sneakers to wear for running errands and casual days out. How pretty are these rose gold sneakers? The quilted style dresses up a basic slip on sneaker and they are super affordable at under $60. I am partial to the pretty rose gold color but they also come in three other neutral colors. I also really like the black quilted pair that you could wear with just about anything.
This striped tassel throw was another item that I found while browsing through my beloved Target. I swear that store is a black hole! I am a sucker for anything with stripes and tassels so this was love at first sight. It is the perfect item to have lying out because not only is it cute but it is lightweight and super soft. This would also make a great holiday gift and it under $30 (#win) and also comes in a neutral tan color.
